From the Dreadit website:

Dreadit Horror Collection Ebook

Amateur horror writers. Dreadit is now accepting submissions for our first Dreadit Horror Collection (title pending, suggestions welcome). If we have enough submissions I would like to get the first volume out early April. Ideally, I would love to make this a monthly thing.

If any of our talented artists/designers would like to be involved we could use help with cover design. Also, we welcome suggestions for a title for the collection.

This will also be a contest with the winner’s story being published as a “featured” story. This will include being the first story in the book as well as credit on the cover, as in “Featuring Your Story Name by Your Name”.

The ebook will contain prose and poetry selected from /r/horror reader’s submissions.

The ebook will be made available to download from our sidebar each month with past volumes available via an archive in our wiki. The book will be available to download in ePub and MOBI formats.

All submissions to the Dreadit Book should be sent in the form of an email attachment to[email protected]

The subject line should read “Submission:” followed by the category you are submitting to. For example –Submission: Short Story

The ebook will consist of three categories:

  • Flash Fiction (under 1000 words)
  • Short Stories (1000 – 7500 words)
  • Poetry

Acceptable file formats for documents are:

  • DOC
  • DOCX
  • ODF

Deadline For Submissions:

At this time the deadline has been temporarily suspended until the volume of submissions increases.


This is a non-paying publication.
